Implant crowns are priced slightly differently than a typical dental crown because they require a special part, called an implant abutment. An implant abutment connects the implant screw to an implant crown. Thus, if you are missing a tooth and had an implant screw placed into your jawbone, an implant abutment and an implant crown will be needed on top of the implant screw. When looking at the price of an implant crown, most dentists charge two separate fees: one for the implant abutment and one for the implant crown. The implant abutment will range from $500 to $900, while the implant crown will range from $900-$1700. A wide distribution of prices exists because dentists have varied levels of experience and use different implants. Some dentists are highly trained in implant and cosmetic dentistry. Some dentists only use the most researched and highest quality materials. Regardless, the cost of an implant crown and implant abutment add up to more than a crown on a natural tooth due to the prices of implant parts.
